Because of the rapid growth and wide use of computers, in practically all fields of man's activity, there is a need for students in all specialities to have a concise, yet thorough presentation of computer theory, design and operation.
This book is an attempt to fill this need. It covers the circuitry and operating principles of analog and digital computers, special-purpose computing devices, machines and systems. Ample space is devoted to a basic theory of similitude and simulation, and a fairly detailed description is given of basic functional elements, assemblies and units which make up typical analog and digital computers, in conjunction with an introduction to the mathematical and logical basis of electronic digital computers.
Separate sections deal with block-diagram synthesis of analog compu ters to solve algebraic, transcendental, ordinary and partial differential equations and their systems. The reader will find a survey of methods used to program problem solving on analog and digital computers, analog with a brief outline of digital differential analyzers and hybrid systems.
Written by leading authorities in the field of Soviet computer engineering with a wealth of teaching and research experience at colleges, the book is student-oriented in the presentation of the subject-matter.
The book will be of primary value to college students and faculty mem bers and also to researchers and engineers concerned with the develop ment and application of computers.
